Guess, who of them is Captain Morgan. Lol…
Christmas Eve was wet and rainy. But Christmas morning pleasantly surprised us. We have real White Christmas!
The Weather Today
After beautiful day yesterday we have nasty weather today. It is snow full day long. Grey and boring Sunday. However it is good excuse to stay home and make the last preparation for moving.
My post “One year project” is about very special subject. I was doubt at all to show it in this particular place because here most of the people are interested in the poetry, literature, history, photography, philosophy, culinary, nature, entertainment, etc. However, some visitors showed interest in this topic and asked to continue publishing. It is the reason of my next post. I am not going to load all of the visitors with detailed guide how to do it. I only would like to place some pictures about what was done and how it looks in progress. It is just very brief set of pictures even about framing.
With that purpose, to save the time for visitors who is not really interested in that subject I put all of the pictures in gallery where you can see all of them in a small size at once. For those who is interested please click on any picture in gallery and follow by arrow to watch pictures in bigger size one by one.
COVID19 in Toronto
Toronto. Saturday. Noon. Sunny day. Emptiness. Hard to imagine the city like that. Usually the life is boiling in downtown on Saturday. Now it looks like a dead city. Hopefully it is not going to last long and everything will come back to normal. I believe!
Trillium is a genus of perennial flowering plants native to temperate regions of North America and Asia.
Rainy day in Paris
Ten days of the last Paris visit have been passing with no any evidence of rain. There was a risk to miss it. However at the last day we were gifted with the lovely warm and quiet one.
It was a good chance to walk around the Rue Mouffetard street Market with its numerous patisseries, cheese, seafood, butcheries, fruit, flowers, wine shops and brasseries.
Market spreads along Rue Mouffetard from Place de la Contrescarpe to the Square Saint-Medard. It is the lovely place where you can loose feeling of time.
Lunch at Spencer’s Restaurant
Spencer’s restaurant is a lovely place in Burlington, Ontario at the waterfront of the lake. Absolutely affordable and tasty food. Friendly personal. Amazing view. In the winter time you can watch the skating rink in front of restaurant. At the summer time it turns to the beautiful pond with the fountain.
It is really nice place for the weekend lunch or dinner with lovely companion.
The November warm and sunny days are not associated with inclement late fall. Rare windy and rainy days with the flying fallen leaves only emphasize the beauty of this November and fall in general in the city of Toronto. Sunrises and sunsets are extremely beautiful. The afternoon sun still warms and caresses numerous stroll lovers, which are enjoying the last days of the outgoing autumn.
The next Friday in Toronto and nearby cities the Christmas trees will be lit, and we mentally say goodbye to the autumn. This is the beginning of preparations for the meeting of winter and expectations of all seasonal holidays.
Gray November Day
by Dixie Willson
I like the fall
The mist and all
I like the night owl’s lonely call
And wailing sound
Of wind around
I like the gray
And dead, bare boughs that coldly sway
Against my pane
I like the rain
I like to sit
And laugh at it
And tend my cozy fire a bit
I like the fall
The mist and all
April came to its end. Spring the message has sent. Sun is going its way. Welcome Day, welcome May!
The last autumn breath
The third day of November was the usual partly cloudy and sunny day in Toronto. There were no rain and wind. But it was the last chance to see the fall colour. Next day rain and wind washed all that beauty out. Now we have mostly grey and rainy November days. The nature is waiting for the white winter attire. My daily companion iPhone helped to save this day for your review.
The first picture is the Grenadier Pond with the reflection of the High Park trees in it.
The berries on the bush is only treat for birds for now.
Autumn trees and bushes are looking at themselves in the pond water mirror.
Only some of Maple trees still are looking gorgeous in the red decoration.
However most of them are almost bald.
Oaks are red as well but not all of them. Oaks are stronger than maples and save their leave longer on their heads.
That Maple is red and yellow and looking like a watercolor painted art under the fall sun.
It is going to be white and green very soon with the snow and pine tree. Good bye Autumn! Welcome Winter!
